Basic Things About Softball Coaching

  1. 1. Basic Things about Softball Coaching By Marc Dagenais, MHK, CSCS, ChPC http://www.softballperformance.com Even a coach who has been coaching a softball team for so many years now still wants to improve himself. He still wants to learn so many things for the sake of himself and his team. Softball coaching is an unending process. It does not end. So if you are a coach who still wants to know a lot of things about softball coaching then the following things might help you: • You must know that every player needs to be motivated. Don’t stop encouraging and inspiring your players because they really needs this. • The saying that “honesty is the best policy” is true even in softball. Cheating is not a wise thing to do so don’t do this. It is better to lose and try to win next time that win because you cheated. • Communicate with the whole team all the time. Open communication is important. Have some forums each time you can because it is important for you to know how everyone in your team feels and thinks. • Be optimistic. Avoid thinking about negative things because this won’t help you. Be enthusiastic because there is a big possibility that your team will inherit this attitude. • Set a goal. Try to create some goals for you and your team and learn to focus on this. No matter what happens you should not let anyone or anything, be a hindrance for you to reach those goals. • Raise money for your funds. Your team needs money that is why it is important that you have your funds. • Don’t believe on hearsays. Don’t believe this especially if what they are going to say will just ruin your plans and techniques. • Be your own coach. Do what you preach. If you are always telling your team to do a certain thing then you must be the first to follow. A coach will not be a good coach if he himself doesn’t know how to follow. The bottom line here is you don’t really need to be a great player or a great coach. There is no need for you to have decades of experience in order for you to be effective. You will be an excellent coach if you are always willing to learn and if you are passionate with what you are doing. Have fun once in a while and don’t take everything too seriously. Work hard and always believe in yourself and your team.
